H1N1 watch

Checking in on the scene..."Second H1N1 wave takes lethal toll on Canadians" we read this morning:
A sudden spike in H1N1 deaths over the past week reveals that the pandemic virus is taking a far greater toll on Canadians during the second wave, raising fears that it is just as severe, if not worse, than seasonal flu.
Yet the availability of vaccinations is still up in the air, despite all the rhetoric from the federal government on the seven million doses sent to the provinces.

Here's a letter to the editor of the Globe that sums up the frustration pretty well:
...In my fairly wide circle of, clearly, obedient friends and relatives (ages 8 to 97), I know of no one who has yet been allowed to be vaccinated. We're not too sure what to do about it, but it's all getting pretty tiring. Could someone just cut to the chase and tell us where and when we can get vaccinated?
Nope, probably not.
